Tony Khan comments on Adam Cole's status coming out of AEW Dynamite: Grand Slam.
Despite helping his brochacho, Maxwell Jacob Friedman, retain the AEW World Title against Samoa Joe, Adam Cole left AEW Dynamite: Grand Slam appearing to be injured as he had a slight limp for the rest of the evening after jumping off the ramp to get to ringside.
Adam Cole's status for the October 1 AEW WrestleDream will be addressed on the September 27 episode of AEW Dynamite, as stated by Tony Khan on a media call prior to the upcoming pay-per-view.
"The Righteous match, as of now, that is still slotted for the event. Adam Cole, he was a little bit ginger on that leg, I think people saw. We’ll address that on Dynamite. Very excited for tomorrow’s Dynamite. It should be a great show and we’ll address Adam Cole and everything happening at WrestleDream on Dynamite," said Tony.
